Mindy was a very loving and affectionate dog that really touched the lives of our family. She was very friendly and sweet and always had a great time playing with kids. She essentially got along with everyone. The only time I ever saw her get aggressive was when our neighbor's dog would sometimes jump fence and get into ours. She was very territorial and felt the need to protect us, so she was an excellent watch dog as well.
The cons would have to be grooming. It could be quite difficult to brush her long and shaggy hair and this sometimes required some professional work to be done on her. Other than that, however, Mindy was a great dog and we miss her to this day. I would highly recommend and English Shepherd for any dog lover who has previous experience with a dog that needs to be well-groomed.
